Wings on DVD?

Fyrefly,

 

I'm even more concerned with *THE BIG PARADE.* If they had had started the Academy Awards a few years earlier, it would have won a passel of awards. As it was, it did win the Photoplay Magazine Medal of Honor as the best film of 1925. Prior to the Oscars this was the biggest award in the industry. I think it's safe to say that *WINGS* would never have been made, if not for the blockbuster success of *THE BIG PARADE.* and to a lesser degree *WHAT PRICE GLORY?* as well.

 

As for *WINGS* It's finally in the works! Here is a quote from renowned preservationist and historian David Shepard for just last Sunday morning:

 

*"Paramount is working on its own version of WINGS using the Academy's beautiful tinted restoration, a new orchestral recording of the 1927 score by J. S.Zamecnik (which is wonderful) and sound effects as done in the roadshow screenings which will be executed with modern technology by Ben Burtt. Be patient."*

Breaking news! The *WINGS* DVD/possible Blu-ray apparently will be out before the end of 2011! Take a look at this thread just started today on Nitrateville by Greg Nestor, who was present at the recording session of the recreation of the original 1927 J. S. Zamecnik Orchestral score.
